    New Zealand's Prime Minister promising changes to country's gun laws.
    -- 680 News (Toronto radio station)

    680 News gave 4 sentences about it, of which that was the last.
    680 News lead story was road closures and said "If you're stuck on the Gardner Expressway [raised highway], you should jump off at the first opportunity."

    Sad to say but this attack has accomplished the psycho's goal. It wasn't just about killing a bunch of people. This guy's goals, based on what I've seen thus far, is to start a culture war. To get the left and right whipped up and fighting each other. Like the image posted earlier shows the attacker picked guns because he knew it would fire up both sides... The left would want to use it as a tragedy to push for more bans and the right would see it as a violation of freedoms.

    Nothing about it at all on my MSN page at all. Completely scrubbed. Didnt happen apparently. Yahoo news and Global both have one story on it. The media censorship is pretty thick. Maybe itll pass quickly and we can get back to matters at hand....namely liberal scandals.

    New Zealand PM says 'gun laws will change' after mosque shooting

    March 15 2019

    The New Zealand government is looking at banning semi-automatic weapons following the killing of 49 worshipers at two Christchurch mosques, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said. The suspected attacker had bought five guns legally.

    The primary suspect was an Australian citizen who “travelled sporadically to New Zealand and stayed for varied amount of time,” Ardern told reporters. “I would not describe him as a long-term resident.”

    He was not on a government watch list in either New Zealand or Australia.

    All of the suspected shooter’s five weapons were legally acquired, according to the PM.

    Our gun laws will change.

    The suspected gunman got a “category A” firearms license in 2017, and began stockpiling weapons legally at that point, Ardern told reporters on Saturday. The “mere fact” that this happened means people will want to see a change to gun laws, and she was committed to supporting that, she added.

    The shooting was live-streamed on Facebook, with the suspect killing 49 people and wounding more than 40 at two mosques before getting arrested by police. Shortly before the attack, he published a 73-page ‘manifesto’ in which he vowed “revenge” against Muslim “invaders” and said he was inspired by Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway in 2011.

    Most of the victims were at the Al Noor mosque, as the attacker was reportedly chased out of the Linwood mosque by a "well known Muslim local" who fired two shots in pursuit, according to the New Zealand Herald.

    The Herald later quoted one of the witnesses from Lindwood, Syed Mazharuddin, who said that the gunman was confronted by a mosque caretaker, who wrestled one of his guns away but did not shoot because he "couldn't find the trigger."

    Currently, New Zealand restricts the purchase of “military-style semi-automatic weapons” to those 18 or older. The minimum legal age to buy a firearm is 16. Anyone the police consider to be “fit and proper” can get a firearms license – provided they pass a background check involving criminal and medical records. Registration of individual weapons is not required.

    Not surprisingly, they're LITERALLY giving him exactly what he asked for in his manifesto.

    This [video] has to be shared and watched, all his "manifests" have to shared and watched and studied.
    Because this is real life and ppl deserve to know full truth and not filtered CNN and alike news. To understand what can be done to prevent such things, how to act during such events.

    discussion on CBC right now [noon March 15] that police and government resources have been too worried about immigrant and external terrorism. Message that resources should be directed at internal terror sources inside western populations, native isms, nationalist and anti immigrant groups etc.
    -- Milanczar;15788576

    At noon CBC Radio had a muslim woman on who said that authorities have been focussing on muslims for terror and that was wrong and not where the focus should be. She went on to say that white, right wing extremists are the true terrorists. She also said that the government must give them funds for security at mosques. It was a totally one sided show with muslim after muslim speaking against white, right wing people who are the real problem.

    Left wing extremists have far more in common with Right wing extremists than they do with left wing normal people.

    Interesting that just a while ago a NZ reporter pushed back on the CBC talking head when the CBC guy tried to push the 'now you are going to change your firearm laws to be like Australia'
    She indicated that they have a responsible system essentially and redirected as being the authorities needing to review how the incident/individuals were missed.

    On CBC just now the CBC reporter was explaining
    'that a regular firearm can be converted to a semi automatic one just by buying a high capacity magazine'

    49 people confirmed dead in the Christchurch mosque massacre

    15 March 2019

    ...

    Second shooting at mosque in Linwood

    A second shooting happened at a mosque in the Linwood area of the city.

    One Friday prayer goer returned fire with a rifle or shotgun.

    Witnesses said they heard multiple gunshots around 1.45pm.

    A well known Muslim local chased the shooters and fired two shots at them as they sped off.

    He was heard telling police officers he was firing in "self defence".
